Supreme Court Gives Hawaii Activist Judge Tuesday Deadline To Respond…

Last week former President Obama’s classmate, Hawaii Judge Derrick Watson, once again blocked the implementation of the travel and visa restrictions put into place by President Trump and the Department of Homeland Security.

At the heart of the matter activist Judge Watson is demanding that Homeland Security permit as many foreign terrorists as possible be granted entry into the U.S.  According to the world-view that all occupants of planet earth are inherently future citizens of the United States, Judge Watson claims everyone should be allowed entry into the U.S. regardless of national security concerns.

It should be noted that Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE, and other GCC nations have initiated a total Muslim travel ban with Qatar…. meanwhile a U.S. judge frames the limited scope of President Trump’s ‘temporary travel restrictions‘ as overreach. Go figure.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court has asked the State of Hawaii to respond by Tuesday at noon to President Donald Trump’s motion to block a judge’s ruling that prevented his travel ban from being applied to grandparents of U.S. citizens and refugees already being processed by resettlement agencies, the court’s public information office said on Saturday.

In a court filing on Friday, the administration asked the justices to overturn Thursday’s decision by a U.S. district judge in Hawaii, which limited the scope of the administration’s temporary ban on refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

The latest round in the fight over Trump’s March 6 executive order, which he says is needed to prevent terrorism attacks, began when the Supreme Court intervened last month to partially revive the two bans, which had been blocked by lower courts.

The Supreme Court said then that the ban could take effect, but that people with a “bona fide relationship” to a U.S. person or entity could not be barred. The administration had narrowly interpreted that language, saying the ban would apply to grandparents and other family members, prompting the state of Hawaii to ask Hawaii-based U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson to expand the definition of who could be admitted.  (more)

      We need to be careful with the Afghans. I know these girls are not refugees, but male Afghan refugees seem to be carrying out a rape jihad.

      FTA: “Europeans were predisposed to be positive towards Afghan refugees. But it quickly became obvious that something was wrong, very wrong, with these young Afghan men: they were committing sex crimes to a much greater extent than other refugees, even those from countries that were equally or more backward, just as Islamic and conservative, and arguably just as misogynist.”

        The whole article I linked to above is amazing and provides many excellent reasons for the need for extreme vetting. It is long and detailed and interesting. If it weren’t so long I’d post the whole thing. Please read!

        FTA: “…Europeans are the enemy, and their women are legitimate spoils, as are all the other things one can take from them: housing, money, passports. Their laws don’t matter, their culture is uninteresting and, ultimately, their civilization is going to fall anyway to the horde of which one is the spearhead. No need to assimilate, or work hard, or try to build a decent life here for yourself—these Europeans are too soft to seriously punish you for a transgression, and their days are numbered.”

        The article is mostly limited to Afghans, and I don’t even think that is one of the banned countries, is it? But it ought to be after reading this. They target our laws to abuse them and use them against us, quite deliberately. It made my head explode.

        I wasn’t surprised with the answer, Afghan men do not like to see women free and confident. I would think most Muslim refugee men are the same in their thinking, so I’m surprised there are more Afghan men by a large percentage doing the attacking than the others.

        I do think the doctor who wrote this is wrong in thinking afgans who have been there for decades will all of a sudden start telling off the new arrivals. It’s not going to happen. A few maybe, but I’m sure they are already doing the talk. The majority not so much. They’re in denial, which is obvious with the excuses the good doctor shared.

        I think this is going to get much worse before it ever gets better, and it may not even get better. These countries have to start standing up for their own civilians and refuse to be bullied when they should be packing these vermin from where they came. This claim that they will be killed on their return for their poor behavior is absurd when it comes for the reason in keeping them within their new host country. Every refugee needs to be told no matter what, they will be sent back, reprucussions of death be damned. You murder or attempt to rape anyone and your butt is on the airplane right back from where you came from. If your country kills you, so be it.

        Most of these European countries are to weak to stand for their people, so it makes it very difficult for me to empathize. I respect Poland, Hungary and the few others who have said absolutely not, and I’m starting to respect Austria who are finally saying no more. But Germany, Sweden, UK, Belgium and others have set themselves up to fail.

        Many of us know that muslims only respect strength. They see their hosts countries as weak and therefore it is acceptable to do what they do. If these countries would’ve stood strong in protecting their citizens from the beginning they wouldn’t be having the problems they have now. It boils down to respect and these refugees have absolutely no respect whatsoever for their hosts.

        Thanks for the article. I hope more people like this doctor start standing up and saying what needs to be said.

          Thanks for taking the time to read it and post your thoughts about it.

          I totally agree with you that they see us as weak and so they feel perfectly empowered to do whatever they like because they assume they won’t be stop. And usually they aren’t.

          It seems unlikely to me, too, that the older established immigrants could ever be relied on to keep the new ones in line. Dream on.

          There were a lot of things that surprised me in that article. I hadn’t realized how restricted the EU laws are about refugees and once you’re in the EU you are stuck following their laws.

          Another big surprise was the mayor of that city in Austria who said, right after they spent tons of money building a nice new modern refugee center, NO MORE! We are stopping this insanity right now and we will not take any more refugees! Good for him or her. More people of courage are going to be needed. Lots and lots more.

        Thanks for sharing Sylvia! This was certainly a good read and gave deeper perspective to this problem and needs to be looked at deeper as to why this is being allowed. Such as the case with the resettlement program in the US. Something is definitely not right about this, and when reading about the Hawaiian Judge, the recent Australian PM and the US rejecting Obama’s secret quid pro quo deal. Obama’s blatant disregard for the law and constitution it is easy to see he hated America and what it stands for, as the dots are starting to connect in answering the question in: what is the underlining motivation of political leaders to defend this atrocious benign cancerous assault on humanity to continue?

          I’m so glad you took the time to read it. It isn’t like I started out really pro immigrant and refugee before I read the article, but it was STILL very eye opening to me.

          And at the end, the question I’m left with is who is behind this? Someone had to organize this invasion. When half the rapes are done by Afghans and it isn’t anything unique to their culture, it shines a light that this isn’t accidental.

          Somehow, young men with criminal tendencies were in some fashion encouraged or directed to head over to Europe and create havoc.

          As another Treeper pointed out somewhere downthread, I think it was kininthenorthwest, the same thing has happened to the US with the influx of young men from South America with criminal intent.

          I smell the hands of globalists like George Soros and others who want to destablize the West for who knows what nefarious purposes.

            I totally agree Sylvia! My research is leading me to believe that the Central Banks who are aligned with the NGO’s and Soros are the ones behind this systemic chaos. For apparent reasons such as creating debt, dependency, and to make subservient subjects of us all by destroying individual liberties. George Orwell warned us about what is happening right now, as many of the things he wrote about is coming or already has come to fruition. Also think about the distraction that is has already created by inducing fear in the mass population of many nations, as the Globalists prey on fear as a mechanism to subvert and divert! Such social engineering is part of the blue print! How else can we explain the Political class purposely ignoring the electorate’s will by offering empty platitudes, virtue signaling, and do nothing resolutions as a means to correct this problem world wide? It certainly doesn’t make sense and humanity is reaching a breaking point soon as Public officials world wide have blood on their hands as it relates to these horrific crimes continuing to be allowed to be committed on a daily basis! Hell! Just one look at Sweden and Germany is all we need to know that humanity is currently in crisis mode, where those countries is literally committing suicide and contributing to it’s own demise by expunging it’s national identity forever! What is the end game? Trump is standing alone as the light in a world of darkness right now! God please help us!

            Its all for a one world order, complete control of the masses and to become richer than anyone could ever imagine.

            There was a video shared here weeks and weeks ago with a man being interviewed about the work he had in the financial world. How he had finally admitted to himself the players he was working for were pure evil. He left with his life, and God in his heart, but that was probably about all. It was at least an hour interview and he wouldn’t give up the names of companies, but he shared how they worked.

            I know I am of no help without the link or his name, and for now I am unable to find it in my notes, which is surprising since I couldn’t get the interview out of my head for days. It’s not something I wouldn’t write down. I will keep looking through my office mess. I’m terrible for scribbling things on little notepads and forgetting to put them in my notebooks. Oh, and I’m terrible for when I’m finally ready to put them in a notebook I can’t figure out what the heck I wrote or the subject, so I have to look it up on an internet search. One of these days I will learn. Hopefully.

            Anyways, I really believe it’s darkness fighting the light. Satan wants control of the earth and all of its sinners. Screw the good folks. It’s why we’ve seen the attacks on Christians, our Creator and everything good. Soros, the Rothschild and their ilk want world domination and in order for that to happen they must destroy the one powerful country who still believes in God and good. They’ve been doing a heck of a bang up job too. They’ve found how easy it is to control the masses and destroy the good. Our government is run by crooks, and if any enter, they are soon blackmailed or threatened in ways that they change. Look at Mike Lee and others. We voted them in because we thought they would do us right and once they walked through those doors, they slammed it on their constituents. Bang. We no longer are worthy.

            Look how rich so many of our politicians have gotten over the years on their paltry salary. Maxine Waters has been office making how much and she lives in the whitest part of LA in a $4 million plus home? She can afford the upkeep and so forth? Where is the money coming from? Her husband’s illegal and ill gotten gains? How did that happen? He had help.

            There was another interview I watched from an ex-spy of Russia. He explained how they used propaganda and useful tools like the blm, antifa, the new feminists etc to destroy governments so they could waltz in and take control. Once they did so, they would kill these groups or imprison them. Every country had their own groups and we now have ours. If you want to watch this interview I know where I can look it up for you. I know exactly where it is. You’ll just have to go You Tube and type it in since I can’t do links from my phone. This guy Yuri may be talking about Russia and what his country did, but one can easily see the NWO’s have copied the same game plan. I will send the information in another reply, otherwise, I will lose everything I’ve written if I try and leave here and go look for it.

            Bottom line, one world order, leaders not voted in, riches beyond their imagination and lots and lots of peasants with no borders in any land. Complete chaos on the outside of their richly walled estates. I actually think they will all live on their very own islands, can’t have any of the peasants revolt.

            Will they succeed? I don’t know how far they will get, but they will not win. The light always uncovers darkness. I also truly believe our Creator’s Angels such as Raphael, Michaelangelo and a great many others are battling like never before against the demons and other evil creatures. We need to pray for them in our prayers as well. They are fighting for all of mankind.

            Well, I royally screwed up on keeping a post short and sweet. This was not my intention to carry on like this, it was just one thing after another that kept entering my mind. I will try and better next time, and to be honest, the majority of my posts have gotten considerably shorter, just not this one. I apologize. I sincerely do.
            Be well, and stay strong,

          Not just the expulsion of native tribes and from tribal lands, but of individuals within those tribes from their own land, particularly the Cherokee. Records of the time show that in the Cherokee (one of the “5 civilized tribes”) area, the only way to tell a Cherokee farm from a white one was to knock at the door.
          The Supreme Court prohibited the land grab and the tribes’ removal. Jackson refused to enforce the Courts’ decision against the State, and added Federal power to the expulsions.

      “Lincoln and Jackson defied judicial supremacy by rejecting its illegitimate authority. President Trump must do the same. The travel ban is within his authority.”

      No. Why hand the enemy an impeachable offense? Everyone knows that there are double standards for (D)ummycrats vs (R)epublicrats, but by now everyone should be able to plainly see there are even more radical double standards between the Uniparty ruling class and outsiders like Trump regardless of party. They are laying all sorts of traps to get him to spring one. Never take the bait even though the judicial ruling is clearly unConstitutional.

      Yes it was Andrew Jackson who said that about John Marshall, Chief Justice and last surviving (F)ederalist, but it was never acted upon. The most important thing about it was the possibly apocryphal quotation which highlights the ongoing problem posed by the Supreme Court ever since Marshall gave us Marbury v Madison. Andrew Jackson, by the way, could get away with an impeachable offense had he wanted to since he had weak opposition as the head of his own brand new (D)emocrat Party while the non-affiliated scrambled to create the feckless Whigs. [ BTW, Jackson could also likely get away with shooting his opposition too, having at least a dozen duels under his belt, carrying a bullet inside his body for life, at least one amazing assassination attempt, and in general scaring his enemies to death. IIRC, it was Henry Clay, his mortal enemy, and/or Calhoun and/or the head of the US Bank who were all deathly scared that Jackson would one day either challenge them to a duel or just shoot them outright on sight. The details are less important than the overall gravitas of Andrew Jackson. ]

      Lincoln had no possibility of being impeached once the southern states succeeded, their members of Congress resigned, leaving maybe a few Copperheads. Once Lincoln went whole-hog into the war of northern aggression [ troll bait ] he won the loving support of the radical (R)epublicans who made McCain and Graham look like peaceniks. Hence, he had no congressional resistance and no chance of being impeached. His suspending Writ, and countless other shaky war powers proved it. Trump has no such luxury, and it would be tremendously stupid of him to do something impeachable and dare them to act. Indeed, that would be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I am willing to give Jeff Sessions the benefit of the doubt. Just because he isn’t doing what many people want (going after Hillary, etc) in the time frame they want, I feel Sessions is working hard. There is a lot to clean up in the DOJ (following two terrible AGs) and he has to work against the Deep State. He cannot publicize everything he’s doing. I think the best thing that people of faith can do is pray for him and figure he’s probably in regular communication with President Trump who-did after all- chose him.

          It seems to me there are many things the DOJ is doing with Jeff Sessions at the helm that are kind of under the radar stuff but are FABULOUS achievements!

          For example, here’s a link to a fairly short article about Operation Streamline. It is a 12 year old law on the books that has gone unenforced that relates to deportations. Good stuff!

          My point is just that a lot of what Sessions does is being done fairly quietly because it involves enforcing existing laws, hardly newsworthy, and because bringing lots of attention to it would bring out the crazies and their antifa friends.

          I always assumed that it would be easy for Sessions to have the Clinton files before a grand jury because, according to Comey, the FBI had completed the investigation but decided not to turn it over to the DOJ because there was “not enough evidence” to show Hillary committed a crime. Knowing Comey is a lying blowhard, I figured Sessions would ask for the investigation and show it to a grand jury. Then about a week ago articles began appearing saying the FBI investigation was wrought with errors. Now, I understand why a grand jury was not convened. It appears that the FBI purposefully did not collect evidence as is required.

    These people have no allegience to this country. They’ve gone to law school on the affirmative action plan – either their parents or grandparents were foreigners and may have struggled with speaking English and fitting in, may have been denied something due to their status, and this next generation is determined to avenge these past struggles. Their parents/grandparents left their homelands to come here for a better life and better way. This generation of affirmative action recipients have received incredible benefits their parents/grandparents never thought possible for themselves. Older generations of immigrants struggled but were still grateful for the prospect and hope of a better future. These little affirmative action twits however, have no loyalties, no apparent desire to preserve and protect that which has made their successes possible.

      Sessions alluding to smackdown: The Supreme Court has had to correct this lower court once, and we will now reluctantly return directly to the Supreme Court to again vindicate the rule of law and the Executive Branch’s duty to protect the nation.”
      ————————————————————————————————-
      Full Statement:

      “Once again, we are faced with a situation in which a single federal district court has undertaken by a nationwide injunction to micromanage decisions of the co-equal Executive Branch related to our national security. By this decision, the district court has improperly substituted its policy preferences for that of the Executive branch, defying both the lawful prerogatives of the Executive Branch and the directive of the Supreme Court.

      “The district court has issued decisions that are entrusted to the Executive Branch, undermined national security, delayed necessary action, created confusion, and violated a proper respect for separation of powers. The Supreme Court has had to correct this lower court once, and we will now reluctantly return directly to the Supreme Court to again vindicate the rule of law and the Executive Branch’s duty to protect the nation.”

    “Judge Watson claims everyone should be allowed entry into the U.S. regardless of national security concerns.” ? Who does he think he is? This judge, and other appointed lower court judges are not more powerful than the President OR the Supreme Court! And from the statement above and others he has made, he is not a very concerned American or very intelligent!

      Without a standard of documentation it’s a problem. With genetic testing it’s a problem as well. Most people are not aware of the high rates of inbreeding in majority Muslim countries. Google it. It’s the primary reason for high rates of birth defects in those countries.

        I have read that especially with Pakistanis there is a lot of inbreeding and some incredibly high rate of birth defects, like 25 percent or something like that.

        Regarding the standard of documentation, this made my head explode:

        “…there is also a certain lack of true identification with Western notions of bureaucratic and biographic fact; many, if not most, Afghans currently living in the West have some lies of necessity in their past. Whichever of them arrived first—a father, an older brother—generally had to make up a supposed family name and a birthdate on the fly, because back home, until one generation ago most people did not have a last name and birth dates were not recorded. I know respectable, law-abiding Afghan families where everyone’s birthdays are implausibly sequential—June 1, June 2, June 3 and so forth, because the family member who filled out the immigration paperwork had to make up birth dates and thought it would be easier to remember them this way.”

      Perhaps it is time to do things the old fashioned way, let me explain.

      “The Supreme Court said then that the ban could take effect, but that people with a “bona fide relationship” to a U.S. person or entity could not be barred.”
      (From the link.)
      Who is it that determines what a “bona fide relationship” is? How does one prove this relationship if they do not have papers? How long does that determination take? How many steps in the appeal process? And, of course, what are the fees?

      See what I mean? Let them take the Administration to court when all their administrative appeals are complete. It’s just like the way they ‘slow walk’ Trump’s nominees, only different.

          I’ve been reading at Corcoran’s link off and on for over two years now….turns my stomach. I helped to circulate a petition to stop the faith based organizations from promoting the acceptance of incoming refugees and getting paid plenty for it. I worked on it locally and otherwise. It went NOWHERE, very few signatures. The only thing I accomplished was getting a few people around me stirred up. I thought I might be making progress when it got to the sheriff. It fizzled. I think the words “faith based” takes the air right out of it.

          There are a bunch of those organizations in North Carolina and they are in the news again now…..in your face with it too. Now they are hiding illegal immigrants who have been deported by ICE. The story I read in the paper recently didn’t disclose more than a half dozen of them but imo there are many more than that. Law enforcement won’t go into church properties and such. The people who run these organizations know they are breaking the law but they consider it immoral not to assimilate refugees and they also know they won’t be charged.

          I think they are more money based than faith based…

  20. Obama appointee with the Uniparty Senate voting unanimously 94-0 and a Republican Senate majority no doubt.

    On March 13, 2017 Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to Honolulu, Hawaii.
    On March 15, 2017 US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who presides in Honolulu, rejects President Trump’s travel ban for the second time. For the second rejection, Watson managed to produce a 43-page decision within two hours of the case being filed.

    On top of Obama’s influence, I wonder how many of Watson’s buddies in California and Hawaii work as immigration law attorneys. 95% of law schools in the US provide a immigration law clinic, it’s a big business within the field.

    The state (i.e., it’s attornies), and the court are two different entities. Can anyone clarify? If attornies for the state of Hawaii have to submit the brief to the Supreme Court, that could be very different than the judge submitting a document.

    It seems the state might be the one on the hot seat at the moment, because it is the entity that brought the complaint, right?

      If you are a horrible person, American Me, I stand right there with you. I am a grandchild of immigrants on both sides. I loved their stories. I am glad they came here and become citizens. I have loved the view of America as a melting pot, the Statue of Liberty in the harbor, all of it.

      But I’m done. We must stop. The world has changed. I had to change my views finally to adapt to the new realities. Economists are always saying we have to have immigration to fuel our economic expansion. Do we? Really? I don’t automatically buy that garbage any more.

      Big Tech insists we don’t have the skilled people they need. Liars. We don’t have the cheap labor they want. Skills gap? We can train.

      Tucker Carlson had some environmentalist on his show last week, I believe, who has taken a ton of flack from his fellow lefties because he doesn’t think wide open immigration is good for our country. Our population will have tripled (I think he said) by the end of the century if we continue our immigration policies. This has huge implications on our water, land use, EVERYTHING.

      Added to that, I am including a link. I keep posting it here today, and I am sorry for repeating myself but I read the article this morning and I am just freaked out by it. It is long, detailed, and very thought provoking. It deals with the difficulties of vetting those who come here and the cost of failing at that.

      One thing that gets no attention is the fact that the 50,000 cap on immigration was re-instated when the ban was allowed by the Supreme Court.

      Remember when the ban was stopped by 9th Circuit & we were hearing msm say Trump broke his promise & raised immigration numbers ,, well it was put back to Obama’s numbers because the 50,000 number is in travel ban. Now the ban is in effect & the number doesn’t go back up to Obama’s 110,000.

    By the way, I think this will be put off because of the open door to the ban that is created. I cannot see Justice Kennedy ruling for Judge Watson after the full court ordered a per curiam decision partially staying the injunctions. The 9th Circuit could not ask the Supremes to clarify its decision. The DOJ jumped over the 9th Circuit, which would have rubber stamped Judge Watson. Hope Justice Kennedy is annoyed with the ‘Supreme’ Judge of Hawaii /sarc.
